In the past I have owned a 6.5-284 with a Schnieder 1-9 twist,It shot the 142 Sierra Mk's great along with the 95gr hornady V-max's.At the time I am haveing one built with a 28" Krieger 1-8 1/2 twist and from what I have read it should shoot the 142's along with the 95's well.I just closed a trade for a 6.5-284(.290) with a 28" Pac-Nor Super Match with a 1-8,Have any of you tried the lighter bullets such as the 95's Etc in a 1-8? My reason for asking is that I read a post on the GGVG board about a problem with the V-Max's breaking up from a 260AI with a 1-8 twist and his velocities were under 3500.. I would like to hear any input some of you have on the lighter bullets regarding twist rate,1-9,1-8 1/2,1-8 and how they have shot for you.I would like to think that the 95 gr V-max should shoot in a 1-8.. Thanks. Landon M.
